The Making of the Indian Call Centre Economy

Mathangi Krishnamurthy

  • An ethnographic study of the labour practices and life-worlds of Indian call centre workers
  • Locates the socio-economic and cultural transformations that accompanied and framed the development of the contemporary urban Indian call centre economy.
  • Demonstrates how the tenability of call centre work lies not in its financial rewards but in its powerful and continually unstable promise of class mobility.
